The always thorough and sometimes controversial Loretta Hunt has dug up some dirt on the Jon Jones DWI story.
Up until her report for Sports Illustrated little was known about the recent incident involving the UFC light-heavyweight champion, Jon Jones. Outside of the fact that he had been arrested for Driving While Intoxicated officials had been silent on the incident.
We now have more facts surrounding the circumstance that has now tarnished the image of one of the UFC’s biggest stars.
Here is a clip from her report (via SI.com):
Michelle L. Vojtisek and Cara Johnson, both 25, sustained cuts, bruises and swelling from the collision and were transported to Wilson Hospital for treatment, according to the report. Both air bags had been deployed during the crash.
Johnson, who was in the front passenger seat, attended Union-Endicott High with Jones, according to online records.
An uninjured Jones had “slurred speech and glassy bloodshot eyes,” smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet when asked to step out of his vehicle, wrote the arresting officer.
The fighter “politely refused” multiple requests to take sobriety and breathalyzer tests at the scene and after he was arrested and taken into custody, said Binghamton Police Dept. Captain John Chapman. Toxicology tests were not conducted, as there were no serious injuries, said Chapman.
